cold filtered water
One: Fill the resevoir with cold filtered water to the desired water mark.
Two: Weigh coffee to desired strength and grind.
Three: Place filter in the cone, rinse with hot water, and add coffee. Shake to level the coffee bed.
Four: Place the carafe, with cone on top, into the brewer and turn on.
Five: The Bonavita will begin to brew. When done, turn off brewer and remove cone. Serve.
Brewing Tip: When placing the filter in the cone, be sure to have the folds facing away from the drain hole. After rinsing the filter, pour the rinse water out of the side opposite the spout. Check to make sure the filter is still suctioned to the wall of the cone, with no air pockets.
Grind Tip № 1: Due to a shorter brew time, a four cup brew will require a slightly finer grind than an eight cup brew.
Grind Tip № 2: All grinders will produce a mix of course and fine particles – none are perfect, however, burr grinders produce far more uniformity. If your resulting cup is too strong and/or bitter, adjust your grind slightly coarser. If it is too weak and/or sour, adjust slightly finer.
